did not burst. It went in the ground

feet around. If it had burst it would
have killed all of us. Shells were
dropping all around us. Some were
killed from other shells. Gas shells

Coblens. Feb. 4- Examination of a
large number of letters written by

the American Third army to friends

It goes without saying that these
letters, or perhaps nearly all of them,
were written by Germans who did not
believe that they would be read by
American officers, and therefore the
expression of their feelings to their
relatives and friends may be taken as
sincere. The expressions of dislike
of the American are not unanimous,
but there is so much of. it in compari comparison

Incidentally it may be stated that

have forgotten that the Germans in
France did not content' themselves
with taking only spare room as the
Americans in Germany do, but often
drove out the families.
Scores of letters accuse the Amer Americans'

never guilty, and criticise the be behavior

more exemplary than any other army

There are few statements of facts
in these letters. They are simply the
expression of the innate feeling which
needs no overt act of the Americans
to force to the surface. They show
how these same Germans J?ate us.
They know that Americans caused
them to lose the war, and they hate
them for it, their sweet words and
servile obeisances to the contrary not notwithstanding.
If one heard any of these expres expressions

never does. It is always praise of the

because the French are so cruel and
the Americans are so nice."

You say that we are "eager to sac-

Sometime we have thought that

overplayed, and a false value attach attached
ed attached .to it. After all, where isvthe noble
generosity in men being decently
courteous and considerate to women,
if they demand in return that women
yield the high privileges of citizenship.-
Tht price is entirely too great,
for women are supposed to be cour courteous,
teous, courteous, too, and I think most of them
are. Nor have we noticed such a vast
difference in the treatment accorded
women thru the north and west. We
have spent many summers in those
sections, and we have observed that
as a rule, women were treated with
uniform courtesy and consideration.
Certainly we have no charge, person personally,
ally, personally, to bring against our brothers of
the north and west. And those men
certainly seem disposed to deal out
even-handed v justice toward their
women. Twenty-one states already
have given presidential suffrage to
women, and many states are on the
verge of following suit. .Soon it will
be that only in the southern states do
nien deny to their women the right to
take part in the government that was
called into being by ah unconquerable
love of freedom.
But we do not believe that this
state of things can last much longer.
Surely the new day is at hand, and
it is about time all the Rip Van
Winkles were waking up. The thing
that is really troubling us most just
now, is the fact that a few reaction reactionary

will be humiliated by having the priv privilege

own women taken away from them
by the men and women of the north
and west. It ctrtainly would be a
great humiliation to the women of the
South, as well, but if our men sit still
and allow themselves to be deceived
by a few politicians, what can the
women do but accept the quickest re relief

speak for the vast majority of the
southern women when we say that
we had far rather receive the rights

even two-southern senators would
change their vote before the matter
is carried over their heads in the.Sen the.Sen-ate.
